Reviews of Tamarind Asian Cuisine
I've been here many times and let me say it is quite nice in my opinion, the Tom yum noodle soup is one of my favorite dishes along with phad Thai and green curry chicken, the massaman beef is also very delicious.
Reasonable portions for reasonable price
On the weekends it is a bit slow so I usually go during a weekday
Try this restaurant out !
For a suburban restaurant, this is pretty good. The food tastes fresh and spicy, though I agree with another reviewer that the servings could be a bit more generous. The Tom Yum soup is a fave, best if you have a high chilli tolerance. I have found the staff friendly everytime.
The only criticism would be the number of cigarette butts and rusty can serving as an ashtray outside - not very appetising! I have also often spotted staff having their smoko near the entrance, which is unfortunately right next to the kitchen door.
I used to never be a particular fan of Asian cuisine, until i discovered this restaurant about two years ago. The food at the Tamarind is delicious, and having tried most things on the menu, I haven't come across a dish that I dislike. The restaurant specialises in Thai, so i recommend you be adventurous and try a dish with an odd name!
The food at the restaurant is westernised for those that don't like hot food, however the kitchen is flexible and you can easily asked the waitresses if you wish to any changes to your dish.
I highly recommend the Choo Chee (especially in chicken), Ka-tha Lamb and Gatium Pik Thai Squid.
Quantity of the serves could be slightly higher and the number of prawns has been lower on the odd occasion. Some waitresses are more friendly than others. However, other than that; an amazing restaurant.
